Williamsport Pepsi employees deliver items to Humane Society

March 28, 2008

The Pepsi Bottling Group's Call Center in Williamsport recently held a "Dress Down for the Animals" drive to benefit the Humane Society of Washington County.

Arranged by Pepsi lead manager Marisa Kenney, the drive was held for two months.

Valerie Bank, Customer Equipment Service Representative supervisor, was very happy with her staff's support of the "Dress Down for the Animals" campaign.

"We are striving very hard to support the local community because of Pepsi's theme 'Look Like the Community' for 2008," Banks said. "I am proud of the outcome for our first community service project supporting the Washington County Humane Society."

Kenney was also very pleased with the outcome.

"The staff responded enthusiastically to the idea," Kenney said.

"Each day they wore jeans to work, they donated either a pet-related item or $1 to the collection."

The result was a pickup truck loaded with a variety of items, that were taken to the shelter on Friday, March 14, by Jeff Churchey.


"We were really surprised when Jeff began unloading all the items from his vehicle," said Paul Miller, shelter executive director. "The folks at the Pepsi Bottling Group didn't say a word to us until Jeff showed up at the shelter with all these wonderful items and a check. We are very grateful to Ms. Kenney and all the (Pepsi) staff members for their generosity."
